Treasure just misses Commonwealth Games medal

Gold Coast Commonwealth Games 2018 Athletes blocked from Closing Ceremony broadcast organisers apologise

Guy Sebastian performed at the 2018 Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony.

What do the stats say?: Outside the Commonwealth Games, which Scotland have hosted, Gold Coast 2018 was the country's best since 1982 in terms of the 5.2% share of medals won, according to Gracenote.

Therefore, Seven was unable to broadcast the athletes entry and instead they were seen to be standing on the outskirts in dark.

"When you look at these Games, the fact we've had medals across so many sports and medals coming in every day has been absolutely fantastic".

"They made the decision not to have the athletes enter the stadium".

"At previous ceremonies athletes were herded around, they stand around, they hate it, they get bored, often they don't go", he said.

"Did we stuff it up? Yes".

"I'm sorry, you're being way too polite", Griggs said, adding that the decision was "wrecking tradition".

Channel Seven's broadcast team were particularly scathing of the event which saw the ceremony start with the athletes already in the stadium rather the teams entering the stadium during the celebrations. "And, to be honest, so have we". It hasn't really lived up to expectations.

Organizing committee chairman Beattie apologized on Monday in the face of a barrage of criticism, saying "we got it wrong".


Mr Beattie responded by admitting the organisers "got it wrong", but came up with a freakish justification of the decision.

The action, drama, sportsmanship, and excitement that has defined the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games continued right up until the last second.

And the secret to her fitness levels and to an extent her calm demeanour in the ring is a training regimen that she refuses to let go even one day.

"People are thinking that Channel Seven has chosen not to show pictures of athletes or not to show the flagbearer, Kurt Fearnley, or other flagbearers", Griggs said.

"It's hard not to have a good time on The Gold Coast", said Erica Wiebe, champion wrestler and Canadian flag-bearer.

The sheer diversity of medal winners was a heartwarming aspect of the Games for India.

Canadian flag-bearer Erica Wiebe was positive on social media.

As the event rolled on, spectators began streaming out of the Carrara Stadium before the ceremony finished, leaving the venue seemingly half-empty when the lights were turned back on.

The CWG 2018 has become India's third most successful Commonwealth Games of all time.

These Games provided a number of "firsts" - the most inclusive in history, with an equal number of medal events for men and women, a "Reconciliation Action Plan" for Aboriginal cultures, as well as a completely integrated Para-sport program.
